Queensbury Hotel in Glens Falls, NY

Queensbury Hotel in Glens Falls, NY

It was the Rockwell Kent Exhibit at the Hyde Collection that brought us to Glens Falls. The planning started as a day trip, but that all changed when, in researching lunch options near the museum, we learned about the Queensbury Hotel. According to their website, […]

Tips For Your First Visit to Boston, Massachusetts

You can learn things the hard way, or you can learn from others mistakes. Our most recent trip to Boston, Massachusetts had a number of “If only I’d known” moments. Parking At Faneuil Hall Parking in and around Faneuil Hall can be tricky. The simplest […]

The Corner Grille in Worcester, Massachusetts

The Corner Grille in Worcester, Massachusetts

About 1 hour outside Boston, in the sleepy city of Worcester, Massachusetts, is the most amazing little restaurant. This unassuming store front is the height of local. It’s a no frills, hole in the wall. But the pizza, oh the pizza. The Corner Grille’s own […]

The Hanna-Barbera Exhibit at the Norman Rockwell Museum

The Hanna-Barbera Exhibit at the Norman Rockwell Museum

HANNA-BARBERA: The Architects Of Saturday Morning My husband is rarely the one to initiate a museum visit, but when he does it’s usually to the Norman Rockwell Museum in Lenox, MA. While neither he nor I are particularly drawn to Rockwell’s own work, we support the […]

Riverview Café in Stuyvesant, NY

Riverview Café in Stuyvesant, NY

Tucked away in sleepy Stuyvesant, NY, the Riverview Café sits just 250 feet from the shoreline of the Hudson River. One step inside and you’ll forget the crazy parking and high speed railroad tracks outside. The real show is what’s happening in the restaurant. Over the years, […]

Metro-North: Grand Central to Poughkeepsie

Traveling by train from New York City to the Hudson Valley The pictures in this slideshow were taken Sunday, January 8, 2017 between 11:00am and 1:00pm on Metro-North’s Hudson Line. Snow had fallen the previous day so the branches, buildings, and bridges were covered in a […]

Blue Bee Café in Delhi, NY

Blue Bee Café in Delhi, NY

Riding through the Catskill Mountains to Binghamton, NY, we are in search of a simple lunch spot. Yelp rates the Blue Bee Café as the best lunch in Delhi, so we check it out. Parking on Main Street, we see the café right away. It’s a classic storefront in […]

The Brain Cloud at Barbés

The Brain Cloud at Barbés

It all started when my husband gave me the CD “Dennis Lichtman’s Brain Cloud featuring Tamar Korn” as a stocking stuffer. He ordered it off on my Amazon wishlist, but I could’t remember why it was there. After a good laugh, we listened to the […]

Russ and Daughters Cafe

Russ and Daughters Cafe

Real NYC bagels with fine smoked salmon In the city for one night meant just one opportunity for breakfast: a real New York bagel was the holy grail. Russ and Daughters Cafe, located at 127 Orchard Street on the lower east side of Manhattan, came highly recommended […]

The High Line

The High Line

New York City’s extraordinary public space Running above the streets of Manhattan’s West Side is The High Line, an elevated railway line that has been transformed into a lush, parklike public space that stretches for 1.45 miles, from West 45th Street to the north to Gansevoorst Street to […]

Fallingwater

Fallingwater

Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterful achievement About 45 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, PA, in the rural and wooded Mill Run, is the stunning Fallingwater. When this home was built, between 1936 and 1939, it instantly became famous. One visit to the site it is clear why so many people […]

Best Ride Vermont

Best Ride Vermont

Favorite Motorcycle Ride: Plainfield, Massachusetts to Wilmington, Vermont One of my favorites rides of all is Route 8A between Plainfield, MA and Jacksonville, VT, with the final destination of lunch at Jezebel’s Eatery in Wilmington. The route is fast and windy and often empty of any […]

Jezebel’s Eatery – Wilmington, VT

Jezebel’s Eatery – Wilmington, VT

Vermont’s Secret Gem Jezebel’s doesn’t have a website, a Facebook page or even an up-to-date Yelp listing. The service is unpredictable, but the food – the food is so good. Open for breakfast and lunch, Jezebel’s sandwich-heavy menu combines interesting breads with really fresh ingredients. The non-meat options […]

Best Vermont Campground: Coolidge State Park

Best Vermont Campground: Coolidge State Park

Motorcycle Camping in Vermont Everyone has their own criteria for rating campgrounds. What we’re looking for is peace and quiet, and Coolidge State Park provides that kind of camping experience. There is no lake or swimming pool on site, no craft activities or movie nights. You […]

The Asian Supermarket in Albany, NY

The Asian Supermarket in Albany, NY

Located on Central Avenue in Albany Coming late to Asian cooking, my repertoire of Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Thai and Korean recipes is limited, but there are a number of ingredients that have quickly become staples. These ingredients can be difficult or unreliable to find at […]

Best Potato Chips: Made To Order

Best Potato Chips: Made To Order

The Looney Moose Café The search for the perfect homemade potato chip ended in Stratton, Maine in 2011. The road sign advertising Maine Lobster Roll drew us in, but it’s the homemade potato chips (the default side) that keep me dreaming of going back. The […]
